LOMASNEY Family HistoryRecorded occasionally as Lamasma, Lomasna, and Loomasna, usually as Lomasny and Lomasney and very rarely indeed as O' Lomasney, this is one of those unusual surnames which used to appear to some people to be French, but is pure Gaelic Irish. It originates from the pre 10th century O' Lomasna meaning 'bare rib', although why anybody should be called 'The male descendant of 'Bare Rib' as at best uncertain. What can be said with some certainty is that the majority of Irish surnames did originate as nicknames for the original chief of the clan, and some of these names can only be described as 'robust'.
